Some interesting reading on schooling, education, the appreciation of knowledge, and the kind of life education should enable.
“…a desirable future depends on our deliberately choosing a life of action over a life of consumption, on our engendering a life style which will enable us to be spontaneous, independent, yet related to each other, rather than maintaining a life style which only allows us to make and unmake, produce and consume – a style of life which is merely a way station on the road to the depletion and pollution of the environment.” (Ivan Illich)
